“Oh, my ears and whiskers…”

We’ve had quite a lot of rain here lately…off and on.  This has prompted a large growth of mushrooms in our yard.  It’s a veritable mushroom forest.  I like taking pictures of mushrooms because I really like the little devils.  I know not to eat these ones in the yard.  To quote that famous philosopher Author Unknown, “All mushrooms are edible…once.”  So to be on the safe side, I bought a bunch of exotics at the grocery and we’re having mushrooms and polenta tonight for our “meatless Monday.” 
Mushrooms always remind me of my favorite book of all times Alice in Wonderland and lately I’ve been thinking it’s about time for me to reread it for about the tenth time.  I can’t find it on my bookshelf though so I must have loaned it to someone.  If anyone of you out there in the cloud has my copy of The Annotated Alice, please return it to me sometime.  Thanks!
